    Kokeshi Dolls

    Kokeshi dolls are simple wooden Japanese dolls with no feet. I purchased this machine embroidery design from Designs by Ju Ju. I used some Asian fabrics. I have. I really like how they came out. I made another one using reds and it was very beautiful, and I can't believe I didn't take a picture of it. This ended up as a gift to a young lady who Loves all things Asian, she loved it.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
